New, 44 comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will give Fabricio Werdum the dream fight he's been asking for in front of a hometown crowd inside Arena da Baixada stadium in Curitiba, Brazil, on May 14, 2016. That's where he defends his heavyweight title against surging 265-pound bruiser Stipe Miocic, not long after Vitor Belfort and Ronaldo Souza bang it out in the middleweight co-main event. In addition, Demian Maia attempts to get one step closer to a welterweight title shot by pairing up with 170-pound slugger Matt Brown. Fun!
